Dem Voters Want Pelosi to Stay

House Democrats' #2 - Steny Hoyer of Maryland - is 78.

For starters, consider the numbers.

It was also the longest congressional race in history. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points. In 2010, after Democrats lost 63 seats and control of the House, Rep. Heath Shuler of North Carolina challenged Pelosi.

It wasn't just in the 6th District where the Democrats lost. Groups like the Democratic Socialists of America have soared in the months since the election. The swing was 17.8 points to the Democrat.

Republican Ralph Norman, a staunch conservative, won a 3-point win last week in a far quieter SC race.

House Republican Leader Themis Klarides and State Rep. Nicole Klarides-Ditria presented the third revision of the House Republican budget on Tuesday urging Democrat leaders in the legislature to vote on the GOP budget proposal by Thursday.

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi.

In his first interview since the defeat to Republican Karen Handel, Ossoff told the Washington Post the Democrats had performed well in the special election.

Nancy Pelosi's hand-picked candidate, Jon Ossoff, who doesn't even live in the district is not one of us and can not be trusted to stand up for Georgia's Sixth District.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned Monday that the Senate GOP health care bill that could be voted on later this week would be extremely harmful to Americans who rely on their health insurance.

He said the turnaround in spending came in 2015, predating United States leader Donald Trump's call for European Union allies to do more.

Mr. Trump said that China had not succeeded in getting Pyongyang to curb its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) might not have won the presidency or even the Democratic nomination in 2016, but he did manage to energize a portion of voters and give voice to socialist ideals. I don't recall Pelosi putting up much of a fight, either.

Ryan, for his part, is trying to carve out a role as more conservative on social issues but populist on economic issues like reviving manufacturing.

At a time when most voters hate Congress, keeping congressional party leaders around as long as Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell is probably a bad idea. Search the words: Pelosi, shrill, woman of a certain age, and hectoring, and you'll get the drift.

Republicans appear to have a stronger opinion about Pelosi than Democrats do, according to Kyle Dropp, Morning Consult co-founder and chief research officer.

The Ossoff loss isn't the clearest illustration of the Democrats' addiction to centrism and neoliberalism-one could argue his brand of politics, like it or not, was a close fit for the center-right district. The races in Kansas and SC, it turned out, were more winnable, but got nearly no attention or resources.

She even defended her appearance in negative ads that tie her to congressional Democratic candidates.

The only remaining House vacancy is a Los Angeles seat formerly held by Democrat Xavier Becerra, who resigned in January to become California's attorney general.

We're not afraid to take on anyone, especially the Washington Establishment-Republican or Democrat.

Still, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spent almost $5 million on TV ads boosting his campaign or slamming Handel, while other left-leaning groups chipped in about $1 million more.
